The Invisible Primary, 5/20

The day in 2012 news: "GOP Kingmaker" / top finance guy Fred Malek insists he's not leaning towards an endorsement of anyone right now, and that sounds about right; 59 percent of Minnesotans say its somewhat likely he'll run for president in 2012--according to Rasmussen; The New Republic's Zvika Krieger profiles Jon Huntsman and says he'll be biding his time in China; Bristol Palin and her son, Tripp, will appear on the cover of PEOPLE magazine, keeping the Palins in the public eye and promoting abstinence in her interview.

Tomorrow, Winthrop/ETV will release polling results of southerners on the short list of potential GOP presidential candidates.
